Our CEO and Director of Services spent the early part of this week at the Mind Leadership Conference in Warwick, talking to local Minds about shared experiences and taking some time to reflect on the challenges facing people with mental health issues and how the Mind Federation, could work together to provide support.

There was a packed schedule of issue specific workshops and group discussions and a chance for local Mind's to share success stories, the latest development news and also what they had learned from working in particular  areas or with particular groups.

The annual conference provides a chance for staff to network with colleagues from across the country and we used the opportunity to strengthen our relationship with colleagues from Doncaster Mind and to establish new relationships with the team from Nottinghamshire Mind.

We look forward to hearing more about the subjects discussed and to seeing how the network continues to work together to improve and enhance the support it provides.
